Sauder Schelkopf filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers who purchased Samsung clothes dryers. It is alleged that a manufacturing defect in Samsung clothes dryers causes the dryer drum to crack inside of the unit. Once the drum cracks it creates a loud noise while the dryer is in use and clothes can get caught on it and become damaged or torn. An accumulation of lint on the heating element may also increase the risk of fire. Consumers have complained that the cracked drum occurs within the first few years of use. Samsung has refused to repair the drum for free and is charging consumers to make the repair.
The case is currently being litigated in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. Samsung moved to dismiss Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint in its entirety, and that motion is currently pending before the court. If the Plaintiffs defeat Samsung’s motion the case will move into the discovery phase. We are currently waiting on the Judge’s ruling before the case can proceed into discovery.
